The Town Highway Department collects yard and garden debris once each month from April through October. Yard and brush waste is the “woody” natural material from your property including: cut pieces of trees, limbs and brush, and yard and garden wastes. This service is intended to provide homeowners an appropriate way to dispose of green waste, it is not intended to supplement or compete with private contractors. The Town does not collect construction debris, dirt, rocks, sod, stumps or grass clippings.
The collected waste is taken to the OCRRA facility in Jamesville where it is ground and mixed into mulch and compost for residents. Each area will be picked up during the identified week of each month. See the Schedule for Yard & Brush Pickup for more information.

To bag or not to bag, that is the question…
If you choose to bag leaves:
*Material is accepted at two OCRRA Compost Facilities. For more information call (315) 453-2870 or visit OCRRA.org. Grass clippings, sod and other types of non- recyclable outdoor wastes are also accepted.
If you choose to have the Town pickup your leaves:
- Leaves are vacuumed – therefore – NO BAGS or STICKS.
- Rake to the edge of your lawn in a row – NOT ON THE ROAD.
- Do not block street access to the row of leaves.
There is no pickup schedule. Pick up will start when the bulk of the leaves have fallen and will continue until the leaves are gone or the snow flies. If or when the weather gets too wet, leaf pick-up continues using the loaders. For more information contact the Highway Department at (315) 437-8331.
